Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin Offers President Obama $50,000 In Exchange Of One-Hour Debate (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin has offered to donate a large sum of money to a super PAC supporting President Obama if the President will agree to debate him.

Speaking on his Wednesday radio show, Levin promised Priorities USA $50,000 in exchange for a one-hour debate with Obama.

"People are giving a lot less than that," Levin said of his offer. "Just one hour, a debate. It doesn’t even have to be televised. In fact, we’ll do it right here on this program. [It would] be very professional, be very fair, equal time, just a debate." He then said he'd find what he called a "neutral place" for the debate. "PBS is no neutral place, but we’ll find a neutral place. Maybe a McDonald’s," he said.

This is not the first time Levin has offered someone a large sum of money on the air. Following the horrific shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Arizona, Levin offered MSNBC host Chris Matthews $100,000 to prove his claim that radio hosts like Levin and Michael Savage promoted what Matthews referred to as ugly rhetoric - something that came under harsh scrutiny in the wake of the Tucson shootings.

Savage, a fellow conservative radio host, has also offered people money on the air. In December, he offered GOP candidate Newt Gingrich one million dollars to drop out of the Republican primary race, which Gingrich clearly did not accept.
